Henri Perignon (14 October 1879 – 18 June 1990) was a verified French supercentenarian. He was born in a town called Sèvres in the French department Hauts-de-Seine. His parents were Henri Joseph, a journalist, and Victorine (née Tondu) Perignon, a seamstress.

On 16 January 1904, he married in Boulogne. His job included being a laundryman as well as being a chauffeur (most notably for the prominent French general Hubert Lyautey). Henri became blind in one eye because of the dangers of this occupation. In 1982, when he was 102 years old, the Caen University Hospital implanted a pacemaker that could facilitate breathing while engaging in physical activities such as riding a bicycle. In 1989, he had a 95-year old nephew named Marcel.

Henri Perignon passed away in Deauville on 18 June 1990 at the age of 110 years, 247 days. He had held the title of World's Oldest Man for just eight days. His death left James Wiggins, who was just a day younger than Perignon, the new titleholder.
